Actually I have too many things to write! But since there are too many, I don't really know where to start. Plus, now is 11.30 pm and my eyes are getting smaller and smaller every minute. These couple of days had been very hectic to me. Let me just write a bit about today.
I iced this cake for my niece Alya Farhani who turned 9 yesterday. My brother went outstation yesterday and couldn't collect the cake. The recipe of this cake will be posted at the end of this entry. So keep reading....
HAPPY 9TH BIRTHDAY ALYA DARLING....
At the same time, I got an order from Amy who is Mak Chu's friend for these cupcakes. The cupcakes are for her son's first birthday, the handsome Danish. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANISH. Hope you like the cuppies and thanks for ordering ya...maaflah kalau ada yang terkurang ye... mama jual...
When I was half way decorating Amy's cupcakes, I received a phone call from my aunt in Bangi to inform me that my other aunt, HAJJAH AZIZAH in Shah Alam had passed away. Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi 'rajiun. Informed hubby about the sad news and he asked me and mom to get ready to go to Shah Alam to pay our last respect. May her soul rest in peace.... Al-Fatihah......
It's been quite a while since I last posted a recipe in here. So for this entry, I will post the chocolate cake recipe that I've made for Alya's birthday cake. Got it from a cocoa tin, back there in Malawi.....huhuhuuhu.... how I miss Malawi so very much!
